Weekly Schedule for Interns

The internship at KU is designed to meet the most stringent hour requirements of any state board of psychology. In order to provide a 2000 hour internship without restricting the vacation allowed interns as full-time university professional staff, interns' weekly schedule during the academic semesters is 42 hours. This is accomplished by working until 6:00 p.m. two evenings per week. A minimum of 500 hours (out of the 2000 total hours) must be direct client contact (i.e., initial assessment, individual therapy, group therapy, triage, urgent care and urgent care follow-up sessions).
